I'll Always Be Courage's Child.

Currently Listening to:
"I Don't Want To See You Like This" by The Joy Formidable

(Sweater by Derek Heart Clothing, necklace from Forever 21,
dress by Rhapsody, shoes by Lower East Side)

I hope everyone had a fun weekend. I, myself, suffered from a bout of food poisoning thanks to my parents' friends - I think they under-cooked the pork they brought to lunch early on Saturday afternoon (I'm still feeling a little gross) - which really sucked, because Saturday night I was supposed to go to this amazing charity benefit; I was really looking forward to seeing my good friend Kari and helping raise money for a great cause. On a good note though, before the icky-ness kicked in, I did manage to get new glasses! I picked out these amazing Ray Bans and I am so, so excited for them to get here. I guess my eyesight has gotten better too (which I didn't know it could do!), or so the people at the optical center told me. Anyhoo!

These glasses are seriously the coolest ones I've ever owned. They're thick-rimmed Wayfarers in a really wicked fiery tortoise-shell texture with this really cool slant to them. Ah! I love them. I can't wait to show you them! I wish I could have left the store with them the same day, but oh well. I only have to wait about 4-7 days more. That should be easy, right? (Probably not, actually. Lol.) I have no patience when it comes to nifty things like new clothes, accessories, electronics, and so on. I hate the waiting period in between, especially when all I can think about are the amazing outfits that will go with these new goggles of mine. Oh, why can't they be here now? Not going to lie, I feel a little like Veruca Salt. "I want an Oompah Loompah, and I want it now!"

Buuut instead, I shall just be happy and rejoice for my amazing new followers! And I'd like to welcome them to MTB! So say hello to the fashion, shopping, music and photography-loving Aleksandra of Ola's Closet; aspiring fashion writer and style runaway Kelsey at RUNAWAY IN LA; marathon shopper and jogger Mery from Cup of Frappe; Greek Goddess Matina over at Living With Style; and uberly talented artist, stylist, and decorista, Lauren Christine of Golden White Decor. I love what each of you ladies do!

Thanks a bunch for following <3

P.S. This outfit was inspired by Karin Kirsten of Wunderlust (one of my absolute favorite blogs) whose most recent post "Falling" featured a great combination of a lace Top Shop bodysuit paired with an Asos maxi skirt. So thank you for the inspiration, Miss Karin!
